Henri is a lefthanded-hitting outfielder who uses all fields and can hit for both average and power. He has above-average speed (6.6 seconds in the 60-yard dash), which is an asset defensively and on the base paths.
He is an excellent defensive centerfielder, having twice won the Gold Glove award in his college league, with very good range to take away balls in the gaps that might otherwise drop for extra bases. He has a strong arm (90+ mph on throws).
In addition to center field, he has played both corner outfield positions, as well as third base, second base, and short stop so he brings versatility to a club.
Henri trains and works out six days a week to stay in top condition and keep his baseball skills sharp.
He has also been a youth coach in the past and would enjoy helping a club’s coaching staff.
Henri describes himself as an “unselfish teammate who values team success over personal success. I am highly energetic and supportive and foster a competitive and intense environment.”
Marc Deschenes, a former U.S. minor-leaguer and Henri’s coach, says, “Henri is one of the best defensive outfielders I’ve coached. He is highly dynamic in the outfield. He’s able to take away extra bases and can use his arm as a weapon.”

Henri says, “[An overseas] opportunity is one that will allow me to continue my baseball career [and] also allow me to travel the world and experience cultures and traditions that are foreign to me. I am someone who values experience and connections over everything else, and this opportunity will help me pursue these two passions.”
